With a Stiff Upper Lip: A Guide to Modern Roleplaying in the United Kingdom


With a Stiff Upper Lip

A Guide to Modern Roleplaying in the United Kingdom 

 By Richard Fannon

Britannia, Britannia, Britannia. We conquered half the planet (and we’ll never let you forget it), raised sexual repression to an art form and we still can’t spell “color” correctly. Successive waves of invasion, immigration and assimilation have left us with a one of the richest and most diverse cultures on the planet, but a GM who wishes to set a RPG in the United Kingdom of the present day will have few resources available to her. This book aims to rectify this.

With a colourful look at life and culture in the UK, Richard sets out to dispell some of the myths Hollywood has created about our green and pleasant land, and with the insight only a true Brit can give, provide a 'tongue in cheek' flavour to this rich setting.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
